Paper Abstract

The versatility and importance of fibre optics in astronomy has received rapidly growing attention in the Last 5 years, particularly for spectroscopic applications in which the lightness and flexibility of fibres is preferred to the use of clumsy and expensive reflective or refractive optics. The majority of fibre systems developed at various observatories can be classed into one of two catagories, from each of which prototype systems have been developed and tested at ESO. It is proposed here to provide a detailed description of each of these instruments under the separate titles: I : "Coupling of the 3.6 m telescope to a remote spectrograph via a 40 m fibre link". I: "Multiple object spectroscopy at the 3.6 m telescope using OPTOPUS". I. COUPLING OF THE 3.6 M TELESCOPE TO A REMOTE SPECTROGRAPH VIA A 40 M FIBRE LINK
